The Ooredoo 5G Hackathon is a virtual hackathon designed to give the brightest thinkers and innovators a platform from which entrepreneurial ideas can be developed.


Our 5G Hackathon aims to support our goals of promoting ICT innovation and 5G leadership, entrepreneurial leadership, and enriching people’s digital lives. It will also enable us to educate local institutions on the 5G market potential and provide a platform for Ooredoo employees to deliver innovation.


Our 5G Hackathon is the first of its kind in the region. It is also the first “virtual hackathon” for Ooredoo.
